On Friday, April 24, over one hundred students and staff from J.B. attended a college visit at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. Students were given a campus tour, an informational presentation about UNI, and a question and answer session with several UNI students. Students also got to visit a college dorm, run on the turf at the UNI-Dome, and eat in the dining center. Several students also had their pictures taken with UNI Men’s Basketball star Seth Tuttle! All of the adult chaperones were very proud of the behavior demonstrated by our students during the campus visit and on the bus rides. Way to go Jaguars!
